20g aquarium with beginner plants and fish.
Hello everyone, You may know from my previous posts that I am redoing a 20g aquarium with DIY Co2 and Med/High lighting. I want to have a DHG carpet and I also want to upgrade my light so it would be able to make a DHG carpet. I am hoping for around 65 PAR at the substrate (16”). I’m considering some of the cheaper models such as the Beamswork DA 60 FSPEC, and some more of the expensive models such as the Finnex Planted Plus 24/7 HLC. I’m really not sure wich way to go. I feel that it’s unrealistic that a $40 light can have 68PAR at 16”. If that is true then it would be a no brainer for me to go with the beamworks. Anyways, do y’all know of any good lights for this setup? (Preferably in the sub $60 dollar range.) And do y’all think that the beamworks would work okay?
